Long overdue post...

Toni Ruppert, working on Grandpa Reads to Me, ©2010
I have not posted in a while and I'm coming clean.  I've been super self-conscious and not sure what to do next with my blog.  I could not complete my "Father's Day" project and I'm sorry to all who submitted photos.  Due to a paid commission and a summer job, I could not paint anything additional.

So now, with my own permission, I'm moving on and will get over my shame.  I've learned:

1) Overwhelming myself is no longer an option.
2) The truth feels so good.
3) TBP: Think before posting.

Author Emily Kimbrough said, "Remember, we all stumble, every one of us.  That's why it's a comfort to go hand in hand.  I talked to my associate, UK artist Kirsty Hall, who encouraged me to post today.  I'm so glad I talked to her.

For the record, I love connecting with folks here and will continue to do so.
